Funny. We totally had eye protection there. Everyone forgot about it. Not exactly the best move on our part D:

Taking a trip down memory lane here. The SGI IRIS Indigo is the machine I learned Unix on around 1997-1999. We used to call it Barney (The purple dinosaur).

The other computer pictured here was the first computer I bought for my ex-wife before we were married around 91-92ish.  It was a Sharp PC-7000 and it ran MS-DOS from a floppy. I purchased a Epson dot matrix printer for it and she used it for her college work. She really loved that machine.

First few days in Maine have been a blast. Went down to the beach at Birch Point State Park then had awesome Lobster dinner. Yesterday we went out to Alford lake to the shooting range.

Today's adventure is a boat ride out on the Penobscot out to Vinalhaven and Isle Au Haut.

You're a special kind of stupid if you think waving the confederate flag in front of our black President is anything but an act of racism. 

It may be your right to free speech but it doesn't mean you're not a racist asshole for doing it.

+Addidis no​ I posture that not everyone yet understands that. I posture that the more infighting you breed the further you can push said understanding down the tracks.

Of course how could I forget the IBM XT which is the first computer I ever used. It had a huge 10mb hard drive.

We hand a hand me down XT as our first! I loved this guy. Someone had written this mad, super complex menu system of .bat files to help navigate what was on it. Even had a tape drive backup. Don't think we ever did anything with that, of course. ;) Thanks for staying up & running, XT!

I didn't make the extended loop. My ankles started to hurt pretty bad by the time I entered the park. I opted for a shortcut which ended up cutting off .7 mi from yesterday path which gave me a total for this walk of 3.2 mi. There is always tommrow.
